Dr. Fernando Camacho de Coca

CEO & Project Manager

Fernando's Bio
Fernando Camacho received a PhD and the European Doctorate mention in 2004 with a thesis on operational retrieval of vegetation variables from remote sensing BRDF data from the University of Valencia. Fernando is involved in the Land‐SAF project since 1999 on development and validation of vegetation products from EUMETSAT (MSG/SEVIRI and EPS/AVHRR) sensor data. His main areas of reserach are BRDF, retrieval of bio-geophysical variables (LAI, FAPAR, CWC, Biomass) from satellite optical data using empirical and physically based methods, validation of remote sensing products, and acquisition and upscaling of ground data in field campaigns for cal/val.

He has been involved in many cal/val campaigns for ESA (e.g., DAISEX, SPARC, SEN2FLEX, SEN3EXP, VALSE2, FRM4VEG) and Copernicus Global Land (> 50 campaigns were collected during FP7 ImagineS project). Since 2004 (his post-doc in Medias-France) he is very much involved in the validation and quality assessment of remote sensing products (reflectance, albedo, vegetation), in particular for the Copernicus Global Land and Copernicus Climate Change Service.  He has authored more than 25 peer-reviewed papers, about 100 conference papers, and many technical reports. He is involved in scientific comittees of international workshops. Currently, he is Vice Chair of the Land Product Validation subgroup of the CEOS Working Group on Calibration and Validation.

EOLAB Foundation
In 2006 Fernando founded the EOLAB company and since then he is working as CEO, but he is also acting as Project Manager providing to the technical people guidance with his scientific background on remote sensing.

Jorge Sánchez Zapero

Jorge Sánchez Zapero

CTO & Research Engineer
Jorge's Bio
Jorge Sánchez received the M.Sc. in Telecommunication Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Valencia in 2011. Jorge developed his master thesis in EOLAB about the validation of the global albedo product from SPOT/VGT.

Jorge's work at EOLAB
Since mid 2011 Jorge is working at EOLAB as a research engineer in remote sensing data processing and quality assessment of Earth observation products. He participated in a number of projects, such as EUMETSAT CDOP, FP7 Geoland-2, ESA VALSE-2 and currently in the Copernicus Global Land Service and Climate change Service for quality assessment of reflectance, albedo and vegetation global products. Jorge is the main data processing engineer of the company and he has strong technical skills, with expertise in several programming languages for software development, graphic analysis and databases. Since early 2014 he is responsible for the technical managing and processing within the laboratory, mainly for Quality Assessment.

 

Dr. Vicente Garcia Santos

Dr. Vicente Garcia Santos

Research Scientist
Vicente's Bio
Vicente Garcia received a Bsc., Msc. PhD degree in 2007, 2010 and 2013, respectively, for the University of Valencia. Vicente’s research interest focuses on the physical processes of thermal infrared remote sensing, like the retrieval of land surface temperature land surface emissivity, atmospheric parameter measurement and estimation of energy fluxes exchange between surface and atmosphere.

Vicente's work at EOLAB
Vicente joined our team in December 2017 with a contract under the Torres Quevedo program (PTQ-16-08578). Currently, his duties in EOALB are focused in the study of the evapotranspiration term, estimated from remote sensing techniques, for application in efficient managing of crop practices.

David Vinué Visús

Research Engineer & PhD candidate
David's Bio
David Vinué forest Engineer and MSc. in Remote Sensing. David started his research activities in Germany and the UK and used to work on environmental protection and forestry management. Since 2013 is working to implement under real conditions remote sensing applications concerning biomass assessment and CO2 sequestration, smart agriculture and crop water stress.  He developed in GEOPIXEL several pilots to check the real necessities of the farmers, especially on vineyards.

David's work at EOLAB
David joined EOLAB team in early 2016, performing a PhD in Remote Sensing, co-funded by the Industrial Doctorate programme of the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, focused on developing precision forestry through satellite imagery. He aims to scale at a large area the business model by a strategic alliance with the University to make available and affordable for the agriculture the last advances on research.

Beatriz Fuster Ochando

Beatriz Fuster Ochando

Research Engineer & PhD candidate
Beatriz's Bio
Beatriz Fuster received the M.Sc. in Telecommunication Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Valencia in 2017. Beatriz developed her master thesis about the training of machine learning procedures in order to develop algorithms to estimate biophysical products over croplands from Landsat-8 satellite images.

Beatriz's work at EOLAB
Beatriz joined our team at EOLAB in June 2016 and she is working as Research Engineer collaborating in support of the quality assurance of vegetation Earth Observation products for the Copernicus Global Land Service. Since early 2018 she is also performing a PhD in Remote Sensing from the University of Valencia about the crop monitoring from Landsat-8, Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 satellite images, exploiting the capabilities of different machine learning methods as neural networks, gaussian processes or support vector machines.

Dr. Carolina Doña Monzó

Dr. Carolina Doña Monzó

External Consultant
Carolina's Bio
Carolina Doña received the PhD in Remote Sensing from the University of Valencia, Spain in 2017. Carolina started her research tasks in 2009 in the department of Earth Physics and Thermodynamics of the University of Valencia (Spain). Her research interest is focused in optical remote sensing applied to water quality and environmental management. At the University of Valencia she was working on the retrieval of water quality parameters and hydrological patterns in Mediterranean wetlands through satellite images, in the acquisition and processing of ground data (water, soil and radiometry) and in field campaigns for calibration/validation of several sensors (SMOS-MIRAS, EOS-MODIS, METOP, Landsat-5,7, TRMM TMI…). In October 2017 she started a Postdoc position in the Cavanilles Institute of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology, University of Valencia.  Currently her Postdoc research is focused on the retrieval of vegetation and hydrological patterns in Mediterranean wetlands through satellite images.

Carolina's work at EOLAB
In January 2017 Carolina joined EOLAB S.L. as research scientist collaborating in the quality assurance of vegetation products for the Copernicus Global Land Service. She was research scientist in EOLAB until October 2017 when she started the Postdoc position in the Cavanilles Institute of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology. Currently she is collaborating as Climate Change adviser in support of the Climate Change Awareness activities carried out by EOLAB.
